Dream Poem 1

I close my eyes.

Haunting the corners of my mind,

I feel them there,

waiting to strike.

My dreams lurk around the edges,

pulling me under,

Good night.

To write.

Why nuisance the world?

Ill go to sleep

Get it right

Good night

Make a difference

Then awaken.

You And I

You are not me,
And i am not you,
But nonetheless
I wish you well and all the best.
You are yourself
And that is that
And i,
good day and good night.

So good night mama,

We're burying our dead

Another generation

In long neat rows

Of chipped, hard stone reflecting.

Their lives are gone.

The bankers live on.

Summer youth

Running barefoot across the water
Spinning 'round into the sun
Laughing at the stars
Smiling at the moon
Blanketed in green grass
Closing my eyes
I whisper good-night.

Five minutes

How long does it take to change a life?

She wondered to herself while she washed the dishes

Splash, the glass broke the plate

Shattered in her face

Blood everywhere, good night.

Do not go gentle into that good night.

Death is not a true win

unless He's taken your sin

and then true life can begin.

My days not complete,

never kissed my sweet good night.

I can't sleep without.

I can't sleep tonight,

never kissed my sweet good night.

My days not complete.

A Good Night's Sleep


 I gather my dreams

Place them under my pillow

Drift out of this world

Sleep softens the rough edges

Awake with new day's promise

When Day Chooses Night

When ambient 

Spirits surrenders

They fade unto night

Heavenly stars remember

Then, we breathe 

This good night

The deep-red thrush

Shall bring us new light

When day chooses night

Short Good Night poem by kurtis scott aka curtis futch jr| Details |

Wishing you all the love
And friendship that is in the eyes of an infant,
The laughter in the pure spring that sprang in the noonday,
And special warm hug of affection in an aftermath of a long good night.

Short Good Night poem by john bernard| Details |

Step forward

Smell this

Smell that

Look thin

Feel fat

Breath in

Breath out

Drop in

Fall out

Step forward

Step back

Pull out

The tack

Clean wound

No scar

Move fast

Go far

Good day

Good night



Short Good Night poem by Leon Stacey| Details |


I said good-bye to say hello.

I said good night to let you know

That morning light's tomorrow's glow.

With new mercies each day will show

That I said good night to let you know

The last good-bye's for the next hello.

Short Good Night poem by nikhileswari swaminathan| Details |


in the cool air of the spring time late evening

the night sky was ink black

as the lights went off , 

the  university ground was in great commotion,

shimmering sparkles of phosphorous,

we thought the forest was on fire

Short Good Night poem by Merle Manu| Details |


Happy birthday

To you i say

Food fight 

Hasta mañana!

Short Good Night poem by John Wilkinson| Details |

How very sociable

My daughter Joan is not at home

so do not call again.

She will not speak to anyone,

especially to men.

She says that she's a different girl

that she's no longer free,

and if you want a good night out

she's recommending me.

Short Good Night poem by Ovidiu Bocsa| Details |


Pope Puiu was an innocent  friend of my  childhood:

Sometimes ,violent and rude;

Sometimes, tender and mild;

Watching the gates of the church and of the pub ;kind of Falstaff priest

He waves his hand from the good-night mist.

Short Good Night poem by Gene Bourne| Details |

Bedtime At Grandma's

Small one
Playing is done
And your bedtime has come.
Wind is moaning rafters shifting.
Inside closets ghosts are sniffing.
Dare not move. Dream you fly.
Sun in your eye

Butterfly Cinquain

Short Good Night poem by Hai Au Chu| Details |


clouded by
careless bravado
i say 
too much
this good night

clouds have gone 
and I am
in the spotlight
of moon shine

loose lips
break the silence

but no one hears
the confession 
of a fool
the influence
of you

Short Good Night poem by Scott Jordan| Details |

At night

When sleep evasively denies

and slumber slips from tired eyes

I think upon your fair facade

and quietly I thank my God

For blessings of thy tender lips

which oft I think upon and drift,

Down into dreams so softly kissed 

By you my love

Short Good Night poem by kristi hayner| Details |

Wrenna lll

Where did you go play

on this fine hot summer day?

Been swimming lately?

Bet you're getting good!

Wonder 'bout you all the time

Wonder 'bout a lot.....

Your silly sweet smile

and how does your garden grow?

Need a good night hug?

Short Good Night poem by Gregory Golden| Details |

I Tell My Story

Let me tell my story

My word is my bond

The truth is my glory

This world is my kingdom

This earth is my home

My life is this journey

My heart is this soul

I thirst for this love

I kiss this good night

Well, this is my story

My life shall not end

Short Good Night poem by gary bechter| Details |

For all the writers on the Soup

 So drained our-selves

 We have so

 Within our daily ways,

 Tired heads rest

 Upon feathered pillows lay...

Thanks to all here for all the fine words to read.Good Lord,there are so many of them !

 Good night,Gary...


Short Good Night poem by Christian Guild| Details |

Relationship of Lies

'Good Night'
I say because its the proper thing to do while dating.

'Sweet dreams'
Is said, though I really dont mean it.

'I miss you'
I said to make you happy, even though I dont.

'Your eyes are pretty'
They really are, just not the eyes my heart longs for.

Short Good Night poem by carl dunford| Details |

Summer sun.

 Summer sun,

 warm my skin.

 summer sun,

 warm me within.

 Set my emotions


 so all can see,

 the glow in me.

 Summer sun,

 It's you I see,

 when my girl,

 smiles at me.

 And when you

 set at night,

 I see you again,

 when she says,

 good night.

Short Good Night poem by Asantewa Darko| Details |

Goodnight, sweet dreams

Goodnight, sweet dreams
Are the last words I hear from you before I sleep

You toss 
I turn 
Cant get you of my mind to fall asleep

I call
You call
The lines jumble
And we try to go back to sleep

Good night, sweet dreams
I hear your voice ringing once more before I sleep

Short Good Night poem by Rick Zablocki| Details |


I'M wanting a sleeping fairy
NOT pills but somnolent fairy dust
SLEEPING all night would be a dream
OVERNIGHT rest would calm my memories
MORNINGS well rested, luxurious fantasies
NEVER take a good night's sleep for granted
IMPROVE yourself, manage stress and relax
AT ALL times

Short Good Night poem by J B| Details |

love sleeps soundly

the sun shines in your smile

your eyes the color of blue sky

your touch warm like the rays

you start my day

the moon glows through blinds

the stars blanket cool skin

your voice the whisper of a mountain breeze

when you say "good night baby"

love sleeps soundly in your arms

Short Good Night poem by Marty King| Details |

let me see you in your birthday suit

there are times of tests when the mind becomes ambidextrous

there are moments in time when the body becomes multidirectional

when the horizons are being bullied and all organisms begin to pollute

won't you please set my wearied mind at ease and let me see you in your birthday suit


Short Good Night poem by Charmaine Chircop| Details |

Fisherman's Trove

Maiden of the sea

on blue silk mattress of dreams

Hush Hush lullabies

soft waves rocking her "good night"

as she sleeps in silver sheets


Short Good Night poem by Kayla Weisheim| Details |

This Boy

I meet this boy down the street

I love him so much he is so sweet

This thing in life about me

is that he just sees right through me

My wishes, My dreams, have all came true

I hope your wishes and dreams do too

At last but not least this thing I say 

I Love You, Good Night, and see you the next day.

Short Good Night poem by ALEXEY FEDOROV| Details |

good night

good night, sweet heart, and be all right

you just resembling dying light

good night, sweet kiss now is not mine

good bye, good night, good day, good life,

good night, and never come again

you could not save but could betray

good night, sweet dreams and lovely days

good bye all happiness and prays

Summer's Bedtime Story

Summer's Bedtime Story

The grande finale

a beautiful painted sky

rich and deep the hues

tucked in by the cool night air

saying "good-night" to the world.
